About Newport Live

As a registered charitable trust, the money we make is put back into the services and facilities we offer – so Newport Live customers help us to support our local community.
We have multiple gyms, four swimming pools, a tennis centre as well as a wide range of other sporting facilities. Complimenting these is The Riverfront, a well-established regional theatre and arts centre which offers a variety of exciting live performances, cinema screenings and workshops.

Newport Live's Sport and Art Development Teams deliver high-quality sporting programmes across the city of Newport and beyond engaging with schools, families and other community groups. 

We are governed by a board of trustees and are operated on behalf of Newport City Council.
